, philadelphia sets the standard. >>> president obama is going right after the right wing media. in a new interview, he talks about what stands in the way of getting things done in congress. "one of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates. if a republican member of congress is not punished on fox news or rush limbaugh for working with a democrat on a bill of common interest, then you'll see more of them doing it. of course, rush just had to respond. >> the mainstream media has ceased doing what they are constitutionally charged with doing. one of the reasons that fox news and i stand out like sore thumbs here is the rest of the media is gone. the rest of the media is in a tank. the rest of the media was long ago ceased doing their job. >>> talk like this from the president has a chilling effect on free speech. >> this whole purpose is eliminating the opposition. only dictators like hugo chavez do thingings like that. >> i cannot believe that the majority of americans would believe that it's okay not to follow the constitution. we would create law based on the god o
the interview s? >> that's right. no news was broken but president obama did himself a great favor nominating hillary clinton as secretary of state, insulating himself from any sort of primary challenge. also did her a great favor by insulating her from the politics of the last four years. joe biden, i think, is going to be in the center of a lot of the big political fights over the next year and going to see his approval ratings probably take a beating. of course, playing kyoto say this isn't about 2016. what a fantastic launch for hillary clinton. should she decide to run. i think one of the things we have seen over the last elections is that the person who has some strong connection with a base who's a candidate almost drafted by the base does better. mitt romney didn't have that. john mccain didn't have that. i hazard to say i don't think biden has that either. any of the democrats i talked to always say clinton, clinton, clinton. it's time for a woman. i think this will be hillary clinton's big decision to make and my goodness, joe biden certainly can't be happy about that but i think th
your relationship right now? >> obama: i consider hillary a strong friend. >> clinton: i mean, very warm, close. i think there's a sense of understanding that, you know, sometimes doesn't even take words, because we have similar views. we have similar experiences that, i think provide a bond that may seem unlikely to some, but has been really at the core of our relationship over the last four years. i mean, i've read a lot about other presidents, and i've, you know, been in the white house as a first lady. and i was a senator in the time of 9/11 and spent time in the white house under the bush administration. and i know how critical it is to really forge that sense of discipline that the president is referring to. are there going to be differences? yeah. deep differences? of course. you had a lot of strong-willed, -minded people. but the president deserves our best judgment, our advice, and then he deserves us to stand with him and to execute. now, i've watched other administrations where there was pitched warfare between this cabinet secretary and another or this member of the whit

, and they're going to work those out internally over the next two years, and i think obama is right, that until they get to a place where a republican can have a constructive relationship with obama and not pay a political price for it, then no republicans are going to have constructive relationships with them because, you know, politicians are just -- are very self-serving and self-interested folks. that's how they got to where they are, and there has to be somebody who has to break the curse. there has to be a politician, a republican, who steps forward, works with obama on something, maybe it will be guns, maybe it will be immigration, we'll find out who works with him, who infuriates the base, infuriates rush limbaugh and glenn beck if he's still around out there, and survives and actually advances. as soon as that happens, then it shows an alternative path to power for republicans, and that will enable obama to then start having relationships again. >> he is still out there. i heard him this morning. professor peterson, let me play for you an exchange when david gregory and sen

down. and president obama is exactly right. focusing on the people at the lower end here. you fix and help the people at the lower end by getting the economy going again. you're exactly right. and the psychologically for the democrats and republicans, it's so important that there be some consensus. you get paul ryan here with his charts, and it looks like the world is going to end at some point. and you need to get everyone onboard to the idea, no, the world is not going towas on capl this weekend. you get a sense that a lot of the gun legislation is not going to be successful. immigration reform is moving at pace. they are having very constructive conversations, republicans and democrats together. the entitlement piece is going to be hard, whether the president wants to go very far on medicare. he has liberals saying don't do it, don't raise the retirement age. so how do these pieces come together here in the next three, four, five months? >> that is exactly the question. when he even suggested raising that retirement age from 65 to 67, decades from now actually, and not affectin
you got the right message of the drawing. that's so interesting to me about all this is that obama -- >> drawing skills? >> yes. >> that's what it is. >> you're incorrigible. >> the popular second term president and we'll see where obama's popularity is a couple of years from now but the popularity in the party never dropped below 80% and the popular second term president anoints the successor and a role of the vice presidential pick. your vice president is the successor. we are in a weird situation where the natural heir is hillary clinton. we saw last night, i don't think it's dramatic or a great statement on clinton's part this is it i'm passing the torch but a validation of what we know is the basic dynamic of two years. she is the natural heir to most people in this party. if she decides she wants to run in this case rock joe biden will run and other people will run. i think of al gore in 2000. the clinton white house basically cleared out the democratic party. al gore won 33 of 33 contested events that year. if hillary wants to run in 2016 i think tha
to make sense of right now is where obama is sort of strategically on this. two summers ago during the debt ceiling talks, there was signals of the white house to raise the eligible age of medicare like two months ago signals ago cpi change is good and then paul ryan saying i don't think there's anything and going to accept the sequester, you know, which touches defense and not the social safety net at all and that's it. have we entered a new face and medicare and medicaid off the table? what do you think? >> i wouldn't be so sure. you're right the president is all over the map on this and yesterday there's an interview with him in "the new republic" and might have been code words and wanted the talk about judicious reforms to medicare and mart changes to social security and how he's willing to buck what he called i think the ideological wing of the party. this kind of a thing and so as you mentioned he's many times before have been willing to even interested in floating changes to medicare and medicaid and now to think he's not going to is a stretch at this point. >> have republic

and neb raska. right? remember, obama got one e look toral vote in nebraska in 2008. so they point to that as precedent but very quirky, you know historical reasons. >> that's been true in those two states for a long time. i think switch to aing to a sometime where the guy who got many less votes is going to be a tough sale. the attorney general who we know, very conservative guy, brought that healthcare lawsuit against obama, even he said over the weekend he thought this was a bad idea. i am not sure this is going anywhere. >> let me ask you: isn't the e look lectora college spelled out? the only tunnelling the constitution says is there is an e electoral college and it doesn't say how states have stodecide those. >> states can decide how they choose their -- how they divide up their electoral votes? >> yes. >> that's the instructions on how to vote office right? >> right. >> electtors technically don't have straight for barack obama or anybody else. >> isn't this one of a piece with all of the efforts we saw in the last two years to reece press or su

the right spirit. i see things that were once off the table for agreement and discussion being on the table with a serious pathway forward. >> in this hour at the white house president obama and vice president joe biden will hold another meeting as they push for gun control. this time their meeting is with police from across the country, including the police chiefs of aurora, colorado, oak creek, wisconsin, and newtown, connecticut. all three towns the sites of deadly mass shootings over the last six months. >>> also today, we are covering the interview that has everybody talking. president obama's joint sit-down with outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton. was it his official nod for her potential 2016 run? >> there's no political tea leaves to be read here? >> we don't have any tea. we've got some water here, the best i can tell. but, you know, this has been just the most extraordinary honor. >> is this payback for, let's say, bill clinton? doing such a great job for the obama campaign? >> it would have covered up the awkward fact that they're setting her up for, you know, a presiden
to do what i want to do. right now, i have no intention of running. chris: but there are many ways to say maybe or even it's possible. but not hillary. at least not now. and when we come back, the aggressive barack obama and the worried republicans. plus scoops and predictions chris: welcome back. no less than "the new york times" has called president obama's inaugural address aggressive. we can all agree the president spoke clearly. >> preserving our individual freedom ultimately requires collective action. for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well in a growing many barely make it. chris: this speech has taken a week to gel. and the geling has suggesting that the republicans have a choice. either they go along with the president on some things, try to improve on immigration, on guns, hit their mark on these bills, or they stand back and play protest politics. what are they going to do? >> i found an interesting poll, "the wall street journal" and he made it seem maybe we should try to make legislation better. try to have some
legal aspects of gay-rights. and so, the first term obama was not nearly as passionate as that speech would suggest. but what was missing once again was a discussion of civil liberties. i think it does reflect this great schism in the democratic and liberal community. i wrote a column two years ago about how barack obama has destroyed the civil liberties movement by dividing it. he does not have a good record on civil liberties. he adopted an expanded on many of george bush's executive powers. i think that democrats and liberals tried desperately to ignore that aspect of his record. but the fact is that barack obama is the president richard nixon wanted to be. host: imperial? guest: yes. george bush tried and could not. richard nixon tried and could not. barack obama did it. he has unprecedented unchecked power. many democrats cannot get themselves to oppose president obama on presidential power. the result is very dangerous. we have the president who is the most powerful president in history. he has rights and powers and privileges that we have long denied to prior presidents. those
on the right said obama meant everything he said. i imagine it is somewhere in the middle. >> it is. the phony outrage and just sort of being -- taking umbrage to everything -- turn on fox news this morning. what's the phony outrage? the clinton/obama interview last night. you know. and as we were talking inauguration day you know, it was only a matter -- since obama was the centerpiece of attention on monday, everyone woke up knowing it was only a matter of time before the right wing media and fox would find something to freak out about and it took about six minutes into his address before they all figured out what it was. oh he's too liberal. this is too partisan. it was inevitable. the only question is what's the fake imaginary slate going to be today and what's it going to be tomorrow and the day after that? again, i think erickson, he doesn't work for fox. he doesn't really do that at cnn so he can afford to sort of call it out. but i think the point is it doesn't get anyone elected and i think the point is fox is interested in clicking phony outrage so the same three million people will
daniel garza from libre initiative who believes in the free-market. the real barack obama? >> of washington was serious we would reduce debt by returning to responsible -- responsible fiscal policy. john: i will judge if a politician will do the right thing. john. >> we must make a choice to reduce health care and the size of the deficit. john: yes. we must make hard choices. but the president has not proposed hard choices. and his inaugural address he said that once and then rejected as it sync u.s. choose between the elderly next-generation. the government must be santa claus. i am grateful to grover norquist. he got many politicians to pledge not to raise taxes. good. it is thought those tax limits would start the beast but that is not working even those that keep spending. it is a far more accurate gauge every dollar government spends if it is borrowed it has hired taxes later. if it brings more dollar the purchasing power puts a tax on the future. what we really need politicians pledging not to raise spending. we have that thanks to jonathan bydlak with the coalition
in washington right now is that toxic. with the obama democrats are saying is do not worry about it. we can borrow the money cheaply. >> do we need more of that? we have $16 trillion of debt already. >> it's like the economy doesn't exist. it is incredible. so we continue to spend and we are going to pay a heavy price for this. can i just say something about the folks that are coming out against immigration reform? is a great article by mario lopez. the center for immigration studies, they are all founded and funded by population control groups. very radical, very far left. i would just urge my republican colleagues to not fall into the trap. this is not an american agenda that they had. gerri: i have one other question. jack lew. why should he be treasury secretary? his calling card was he was a failure of mustard and not a success what do you say? >> the republican charge was and that he was a failure but that what you can open the door to get more donations back out. they just wanted him. >> the one that's what they want to go work for a big wall street investment bank. >> it isn't his b
as right now the entire debate within the obama administration over approving the access rights to the keystone pipeline is going to have quite a substantial effect on what the overall economic growth of the united states is over the next ten years. policies that seek to, um, make it more possible for those innovations to spring to life without being choked or strangled -- they wouldn't really be, but held back unnecessarily have an enormous potential for economic growth. and the point that joe's making is very important. the united states last year while this entire debt crisis was going on and our, and our level was downgraded put out a bond issue, right? so that ten-year treasury bill, and, basically, it sold out everybody who bought it bought it basically at a loss. that is the interest rate is at 1.6, 1.7% which means over ten years they were actually paying the united states because of inflationary growth. they were paying the united states to park their money in a t-bill. that's the nature of the world. we sit here looking at our own navals and everything, and the truth i
